Why Our Experts Love It

We love books that have a great message.

We all need to give thanks for what we have, and sometimes (actually, many times) we all take things for granted.

This beautifully told and illustrated story was love-at-first read (and sight). It is a must!
  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time. Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information. Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language.
  • They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object. In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity. We want children of all ages to hear adult, complex sentences so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below.
  • 4-5 year olds at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest. At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
  • 5-6 year olds – Your child will begin to read at this age, generally by memorization of sight words. Keep a running list of the words that your child successfully recognizes. They will feel great pride as the list grows longer and longer.
